Willem II vs Groningen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Groningen have won four of their last five meetings with Willem II ahead of the clubs’ latest encounter. Read our top three expert predictions for Saturday’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Groningen Double Chance

Groningen have found victories difficult to come by in recent weeks, though their head-to-head record against Willem II should help to galvanise their confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash. Groningen are a real bogey team for Willem and they have won four of their last five matches against the Tricolores. With that strong record pushing them on, they are worth backing in the double chance market this weekend.

Both Teams to Score

Encounters between Willem II and Groningen have been happy hunting grounds for BTTS bettors in recent years, indeed, nine of the clubs’ last 13 skirmishes produced goals at both ends. Five goals hit the net when the sides last went toe-to-toe in a 3-2 January thriller that finished in Groningen’s favour and we’re tipping both teams to impact the scoresheet again on Saturday.

Highest Scoring Half: Second

It’s interesting to note that all six goals plundered in last season’s pair of Eredivisie meetings between Willem II and Groningen were registered in the second half and that suggests that backing the second period to see more goals than the first could be a smart move this week. In addition, Willem II have yet to score a single goal in the first half at home this term and we expect that pattern to continue this weekend.

Willem II vs Groningen: Match Preview

Willem II team news

Timon Wellenreuther should return from injury in time to replace the suspended Jorn Brondeel between the sticks for Willem II on Saturday. Brondeel will watch from the sidelines alongside injured pair Wesley Spieringhs and Ringo Meerveld. The stopper was given his marching orders after just 15 minutes of Willem II’s 0-0 draw at NEC last week.

Groningen team news

Wessel Dammers, Radinio Balker and Jörgen Strand Larsen are all expected to miss Groningen’s clash with Heerenveen. Mike te Wierik serves a suspension following his dismissal last week and he could be replaced at the heart of the defence by Marin Sverko. Groningen held high-flying Heerenveen to a 1-1 draw in their last outing, though they could have turned one point into three had they been more clinical.
